Doesn't AI learn by mistakes?
So how many planes need to slam into each other before it has gathered enough data to work out it's not a good thing?
DARPA, the US warboffin bureau which curls a supercilious lip at established wisdom and tweaks the nose of consensus opinion, has decided to press ahead with its automated artificial-intelligence air traffic control system. The move is doubly welcome here at Vulture Central: not only is it a tasty tech-news nugget, but the …
As the title suggests, GILA will be a poisonous threat to man and since it certainly qualifies as the predecessor to Skynet, I wonder why there is no EL Vulture trademarked "RoTM" symbol next to the article so humanoids everywhere are warned of our impending doom.
I for one, welcome our self aware silicon overlords.
Not really. As far as I can remember it usally is flicked into learning mode, then presented a training set which then calibrates the neural network.
Then it is flipped back into a operating mode, where it no longer learns.
(note: "learning mode", "calibrates" and "operating mode" are probably not the actual names...)
i remember the strange predictions of timothy leary and alain jourgenson [rev-co/ministry/lard/2000hdjs]
from 1993's rev-co hit "Gila Copter" no less

`Those` zealots are going to ruin it for everyone... WTF LETHAL ARMED DRONES?! Smartbombs/Missiles? At a SPORTING event? In the UK? And we are just going to accept this?! Combine this with the absolute scandal that is the ID Card, no, sorry `National Identity Scheme` ..https://secure.wikileaks.org/leak/nis-options-analysis-outcome.pdf And as soon as they can coerce us into it we will be wearing RFID tags, they already offer them on a voluntary basis in the states to `protect your loved one` (VeriChip). Everything about you, what you do, where you are, how much money you have, your transactions, your signature... Accessible on demand by ? Corporations and Government departments.
I dunno... doesn't this `bigger picture` concern anyone? How long now before we have armed (probably private/corporate, who knows, maybe we'll be lucky enough to share Blackwater with the Americans) police patrolling our streets... Unspecified RAF sources describe as "a God's-eye view of the battlefield". (http://www.theherald.co.uk/news/other/display.var.1951327.0.RAF_drones_to_be_used_for_2012_Olympics_security.php)
